• 2012 Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant

    At high water in the afternoon of Sunday 3 June 2012, up to a thousand boats will muster on the River Thames in preparation for Her Majesty The Queen to lead the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

    It will be one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river. Rowed boats and working boats and pleasure vessels of all shapes and sizes will be beautifully dressed with streamers and Union Jacks, their crews and passengers turned out in their finest rigs.

    The armed forces, fire, police, rescue and other services will all be afloat together with an exuberance of historic boats, wooden launches, steam vessels and other boats of note.

    For those who want to watch this spectacular event from dry land, Thames piers, riverside roads and bridges will be closed to traffic and there will be up to fifty big screens distributed along the route to allow members of the public to enjoy the pageant from all possible vantage points.

    For families and others with children, Battersea Park is a destination area with a day-long programme of music, traditional funfair and artist-led Jubilee-themed entertainment.
